SEOUL, South Korea — The Hyundai HND-9, a luxury sports coupe concept that will debut next week at the 2013 Seoul Auto Show, hints at a future production model of the brand's current Genesis Coupe.

Teaser sketches of the rear-wheel-drive HND-9 show a concept with butterfly doors, dual exhaust tips and a sleek interior.

"One of the alternatives is the next generation of Gen Coup; however, they are considering other options," a Hyundai executive who did not want to be identified, told Edmunds on Thursday in response to an e-mailed query.

The Hyundai HND-9 is equipped with a turbocharged and direct-injected 3.3-liter V6 and an eight-speed automatic transmission. Engine output is pegged at 365 horsepower.

The 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe is equipped with either a turbocharged 274-hp 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine or a 348-hp 3.8-liter V6. The current Genesis Coupe already can be equipped with an eight-speed automatic.

"The HND-9, with its dramatic long hood and wheelbase, is a modern reinterpretation of the elegant image of a classic premium sports coupe," said Hyundai in a statement.

More details about the concept will be disclosed on March 28, the automaker said.

Edmunds says: Hyundai appears to be aiming at a premium image for the future Genesis Coupe.
